Yet again, it seemed the spirit fox felt himself to be their superior instead of part of a team, which only got a snort from the vixen before she casually stood up from where she was lying and started walking away after he approached. She was in no mood to play the coy game with such a creature, even if he WAS actually stronger than her, she didn't know, nor did she intend to find out through a pissing contest. She rolled her eyes at his continuous dismissive behavior before she decided to finally say something. After all, Liacaru had a point on at least one thing he said out of all of that; she was reasonable.
"Look, before I answer the thing about the end game goal here, I would like for you to realize something. Lex is too focused on teamwork and not compromising comrades to mention it, but I don't mind since this is literally my home and I'm not really liking your attitude about this. Lex brought you to this place for two reasons, one was because he thought you could benefit from this place because of the energy here. He's putting a lot of faith in you already with that considering he already guessed you couldn't turn off that absorption ability of yours and figured if there was going to be any living creature that could handle it, it would be me and the rest of my kind. Second reason however, was that if you were to try anything, we can still do something about it.
" she began, a stern look of her own towards the fox. At the mention of 'me and my kind', some of the other foxes that were just about the same height and even taller padded their way from behind the trees, giving that wary look towards Liacaru again while the smaller vixen spoke.
Lex wanted to interject, opening his mouth before Nina put up a paw to abruptly stop him. "No, not yet Lex, let me finish.
" she said swiftly, turning back to face Liacaru again with a displeased look. "You're cute and all, but I've seen many come and go in the shinobi world due to that same attitude of yours that you have right now. It gets people killed and frankly I'll make the decision for Lex to get rid of you if you're not willing to work together. I mean, if you would have thought about just the one ability he used in the city, you'd know yourself that he has the ability to...
" she began, but felt a sudden tremble in the earth below in the spot where she was standing. "That's enough Demina, you're saying too much.
" he said in a serious tone, crossing his arms as he gave an intense glare at the vixen.
Nina remained quiet, but she returned the same intense glare back at him, the two not saying anything else for the next couple of seconds before Nina decided to go back to the point of it all. "We all came here to help YOU out Liacaru and keep you in check, in case things went awry and you didn't know how to handle the massive amount of energy Lex wanted to give you. I'd be just a bit more grateful if I were you.
" she said nonchalantly before trodding her way towards the base of another tree, slumping down into another lazy pose before keeping her gaze on the much larger fox, grumbling about 'the nerve of him' and 'kids these days' and the likes. "Besides all of that... we're not underprepared to fight your kind, but there's no reason to not make one's abilities better if they have the chance; you never know when you might get the chance again at a later time. Also, to answer your other question Liacaru, this training isn't meant to counter you specifically, though that is a byproduct of it if we ever had to fight, which would be unfortunate, but this is for a part of that end goal you spoke of, I'm specifically making sure people don't get any of my artifacts and equipment while also cleansing this earth of any evil entities, both physical and spiritual alike.
" he started, uncrossing his arms to seem more approachable while he continued speaking.
"You don't have to be a part of that if you don't want to, however I'd assume you'd like to consume more Hollows and other spiritual entities that are causing far too much destruction of this plane, a plane mind you that has far much more to offer than the place you showed us earlier. More or less, Minerva has decided to tag along and hasn't told me her plans in particular,
but when she does, I'm willing to help her accomplish them if they are reasonable enough.
" he mentioned carefully, trying to convince Liacaru that it wasn't about anyone in particular, but more as a group. Still, with a group like this, someone who lived for thousands and thousands of years, one who had died and transformed into an entirely different spiritual being over hundreds of years ago, a summons who had been alive for centuries and had seen multiple wars amongst the earth until the shinobi world had been practically wiped out and a guy who could see the visions of multiple reincarnations of himself, it was going to be hard to simply trust one another since each one had their own credible experiences for those extended periods of time under their belt.
